Pirate bomb is our beer Prairie Bomb! aged in rum casks. The flavor from the casks helps impart more vanilla and coconut flavors to the beer while helping to add more body and smoothness to the already explosive and expressive flavors of Bomb!

Turtles (766) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 18, 2015
355ml bottle from Systembolaget, bought in March 2015, ABV 14%. Black with a small compact, creamy beige head. Roasted and aged aroma, dark chocolate, vanilla and booze. Full-bodied, smooth, silky mouthfeel. The taste of oak barrels and rum takes over the big picture, hints of vanilla, espresso beans and the heat of the chili is in the background. Finish dry with wood and hay.

Geiserich (3768) - Linz, AUSTRIA - AUG 11, 2015
Bottle shared by Werckmeister at RB Tasting Linz, many thanks. Black color, dark brown, low head. Aroma is complex with dark chocolate, ash, chilli, herbs, stinging nettle, alcohol. Flavor with dark chocolate, chilli, herbs, sharpness. Interesting but the chilli and alchol notes are too intensive.

mateuszk (1115) - Poznań, POLAND - AUG 1, 2015
Draufht. Pitch black, thick beige head. Aroma and taste is mix of dark chocolate, pralines, cherries/plums in liquor, rum, oak, roastiness, coffee. All served in a big, full bodied, thick and oily beer. Softly carbonated, silky smooth on the palate. Alcohol very well hidden, shows only as a warm burning. Only flaw is very low acet aldehyde, but that was just a nuanse in all this fantastic mix of flavours. Outstanding beer.

ksiwzos (90) - GREECE - JUL 27, 2015
Very dark brown, almost black, very very small light brown head. Aroma of chocolate, sweet coffee, dark caramel, dark fruit, light soy sauce notes but mainly oak caramel and vanilla sweetness (rum) all the way. Taste is sweet-ish but not cloying, dark fruits, oak again, alcohol nowhere to be seen... Finish is light spicy(chilli peppers?). An amazingly strong tasting beer with oak character and roasted malts dominating.

A very special beer, dear to my heart. It really tastes differently at every temperature, so you can’t really appreciate it with a few sips. Immediately after being served from the tap, you can smell the vanilla and the rum, while the chili spiciness dominates the taste. As the beer warms down, chocholate, coffee and coconut slowly parade in your mouth and nose, pleasently surprising you every time. Finally, once the beer has been in your glass for an hour or so, you take a sip and the taste is completely different. All the seperate aromas and tastes have disappeared, they have been perfectly blended together in a unique smell and a unique taste (the two perfectly compliment each other), the smell and taste of the Prairie Pirate Bomb. A great beer with a great name. Many thanks to George from the Hoppy Pub for importing this gem to Greece!

Leini (1435) - SWEDEN - JUL 23, 2015
355ml bottle. Pitch black crownless body, pouring like engine oil. Heavy roasted aromas, alongside with dark chocolate, ash, vanilla and dark sugars. Tastes is dry, with dark choholate, rye bread, ash and coffee notes. Semi sweet finish. Quite easy to drink for a strong ale as this.

Thanks to gregwilsonstl for sharing this with me. Pours dark brown with not much of a head. The aroma has roast, caramel, sweetness, brown sugar and rum. It has a full thick body with only a minor amount of carbonation. The taste is drier than the aroma with more alcohol, dark fruits, harsh earth and wood. The finish is abrasive, but fits with the beer. Quite good.
